Went to the Mai Yai Thai Orchid last night based on the earlier reviews hear and I was not disappointed. Great service, attentive but not overbearing, and delicious food at great prices. I had the pineaple fried rice as recommended by another reviewer and it was fantastic!!! They now have a wine and alcohol menu:-) Well worth the visit and if I ever find myself in KK again I'll be sure to eat here again.

We ate here twice during our stay in KK. The food was really good, like other reviewers we'd definitely recommend the pineapple rice. Their tom yum and tom kha soups are legendary.

Having accidentally stumbled across this restaurant we just had to let others know about it. The food was amazing. As a family we are very big fans of Thai food & we were really impressed with every aspect of it.
The service was great, it was very good value for money & we have to second a previous reviewers praise of the Pineapple Fried Rice.....fantastic!!
We went twice during our stay, & it would have been more if we'd had chance!!

Mai Yai has great food, excellent presentation and a very friendly staff. The Green Curry Chicken in the coconut shell was wonderful! We already have New Year's Eve plans or we'd be back tonight! It is near the Borneo Trading Post, a great little shop as well.
